is the smaller apartment of the 2
on the houseboat "Piano-Forte".
The Piano is romantic…yes.
The view is fantastic, doesn't matter which window you look through,
the big or the beautiful round once.
You feel good in this jewelry on the water.
Me as the owner and planner of the houseboat,
I thought afterwards: yes that's what I wanted.
I can be happy with this.
Floor heating, perfect kitchen and bathroom
don't make it always easy to leave for sight-seeing.
Also here on the "Piano" you can get the sense and feeling of Amsterdam.
When the weather isn't that fantastic (can happen in Holland)
it's very easy, comfortable and nice to stay at "home".
You just relax and make yourself a nice tea or coffee.
There are these big windows on the "Piano" which you can open.
It really seems to be outside on the water.
A special effect also on the houseboat "Piano" is this
walking on the same level than the water surface.
This situation is still special for me to,
also after a lot years living on the water.
Thanks for listening; Klaus.
Also here I tried to make a "HOME" for you,
a place where you like to come back after a busy day in town or elsewhere.
There is a fully equipped kitchen.
The bedroom has a comfortable double bed.
There are very comfortable sofa-beds (double & single) in the living room.
Bathroom with shower flush-toilet & bidet (floor heating & radiator).
When you open the big windows you are more or less outside, very near to the water.
Hot water, kitchen and the heating system operates on piped gas.
The boat is centrally heated.
Floor heating and in the sleeping room a radiator to regulate the temperature.
With a thermostat you choose the temperature you want.
The shutters on all windows provide insulation and total darkness.
There is color cable television and a hi-fi - stereo system with a CD-player.
Bed - linen, blankets and towels are supplied.
On all the boat is a Wi-Fi- connection, so on the "Piano". (YOU HAVE TO BRING YOUR OWN LAPTOP)
All the windows can be locked to be safer with children.
There is a terrace which you can lock, which is also very useful for the bikes you maybe going to rent.
Like the houseboat "Forte", the "Piano" is near to busy city-life,
but it is very well insulated.
Inside the "Piano" you feel little of the busyness of the town,
outside during daytime, you are near to a lot what happens in town.
The houseboat "Piano" is built in 2011.
The size of the "Piano" is 8,00m x 5,00m (without terrace)
The "Piano" is for your own use with your own entrance and offers you excellent privacy.
Discover Amsterdam, by boot, bicycle or by feet,
Remember: The "Piano-Forte" is also a free-standing houseboat in the middle of Amsterdam.
The Wester - Church is in about a 5 minute walking distance
The DAM needs about a 10 minute walk.
Food you can buy on the other side of the street.
In a less than 5 minutes walk, there is very well equipped supermarket.
forget the car.
